A fantastic improvisor has challenged herself to compose, and in her new exciting trio the sparks fly!

The energetic saxophone player Mette Rasmussen is best known for strong improvised concerts, mainly solo, but also in smaller groups. She was also the warm-up act to, and later part of, the band Godspeed You! Black Emperor.

Now she has to a greater extent prepared and worked through her ideas in advance, utilizing her unique voice and sound as an electrifying toolbox. Together with the brilliant musicians who form the trio, we can promise you a very special concert. With only a light sprinkling of electronic effects, Rasmussen is at her most capturing in this setting, doing brilliant work on top of Håker Flaten’s groovy bass lines and Corsano’s mesmerising beats.

The concert is commissioned and supported by Nasjonal jazzscene, Norway
